Although changes made to the Satute pave her way back into the highest ranks of Democratic Party, Jozefina Topalli seems far from seeking a reconciliation with the current leader Lulzim Basha, whom she now ironically considers as 'chairman for life'.
The former Parliament Speaker reacted over the last National Council meeting of DP considering it a meeting that killed democracy.
"Yesterday, Basha gave himself all powers thus formally killing internal democracy. He transformed DP into his own wheelchair, steering it towards Rama and then towards SMI, but always disregarding democrats. I will never accept that Rama and others decide for democrats. I will never put up with the atmosphere of division prevailing at the DP or with witch hunting used during the last years. I will never put up with a steer towards communist mentality LB is trying to impose to the political force which toppled communism. I will never reconcile with someone like Basha who speaks against oligarchs all day and shares their interests at the same time. It is better that Luli step down as DP leader and allow the DP to take care of our country", Topalli said.
